Supporting the launch of the latest AMD Embedded R-Series SOC series (formerly codenamed “Merlin Falcon”), SAPPHIRE Technology is offering several new solutions to enable customers to quickly adopt this technology and incorporate it into new designs.
SAPPHIRE Technology has just announced that it is now shipping the AMD Radeon™ R9 Nano - targeting high performance small-form-factor PC builds with AMD’s third “Fiji”-based GPU featuring the revolutionary High-Bandwidth Memory (HBM) and support for next-generation DirectX® 12 gaming.
SAPPHIRE Technology has just announced a new addition to its successful SAPPHIRE NITRO Gaming series of graphics cards designed to provide the balance of high end features and affordability for the majority of gamers. The new card is based on the latest GCN (Graphics Core Next) architecture from AMD and delivers the full feature set including support for the latest operating systems as well as being ideal for online gaming.
Following the success of its innovative ITX model in its last generation of graphics cards, SAPPHIRE Technology has just announced another new model in its successful R9 series of graphics cards based on the latest GCN (Graphics Core Next) architecture from AMD.
SAPPHIRE Technology has just introduced a new enthusiast level graphics card, designed to deliver “Best in Class” performance in 4K gaming and multi-screen applications, while at the same time running cool and quietly. The SAPPHIRE Tri-X Radeon™ R9 FURY is based on an exciting new GPU from AMD that combines Graphics Core Next architecture with the revolutionary high bandwidth memory (HBM). This is coupled with a new and sophisticated cooling solution developed specially for this card, based on SAPPHIRE’s award winning multi-heatpipe triple fan Tri-X cooler to allow the card to run totally silently at low loads, and quietly and at low temperatures even when gaming or in demanding applications.
As it should be with modern graphics cards, the SAPPHIRE Radeon™ R9 Fury Tri-X OC switches off all three fans in Windows. Since the product does not omit any other sound, it is completely silent in Windows. Under load, the measurements make you think there is a spelling mistake, but it is not. The SAPPHIRE Radeon™ R9 Fury Tri-X OC is really as silent as 31,5dB. For a high end graphics card this is breathtakingly silent. Even the Palit GeForce GTX 980 SuperJetstream is a little louder. The reason for this is obviously the very well-functioning cooler, because the three fans only run at around 1200 rounds per minute.
The interpretation by the SAPPHIRE Radeon™ R9 Fury Tri-X OC of the score set by AMD is perfect. Even if the cooler still has the same name, it has nothing in common with the solution on the R9 390X Tri-X. With only 31,5dB under load in a closed case the card runs amazingly quiet. Even the best models of the GTX 980, which set new records before, cannot compete with that.
In order to really classify the AMD Radeon™ R9 Fury the final pricing still needs to be clarified, but one thing is for sure even today: with the overall performance the SAPPHIRE Radeon™ R9 Fury Tri-X OC has earned the recommendation of the editorial staff.
